Actually, we didn't meant to have dinner at Restoran Yee Sang Fatt as both of us together with It's Sew Good and her hubby was supposed to head to Jalan Alor for Lanatir to bring us to eat Sichuan food but alas it was a Monday the Sichuan food stall was closed. So Lanatir asked us to head over to Pudu instead to check out another of his favourite Chinese dai chau (big fry) place. It is quite easy to locate since we know where is Huen Kee Claypot Chicken Rice. It's just the road (Jalan Gajah) before Huen Kee and opposite Gereja Methodist (Kantonis) Pudu.
We have asked Lanatir to order the food since he got there first. First up was Siong Tong Lala (Clams in Superior Broth). Wahhh I like this one! The soup is sweet laden with a very fragrant Chinese cooking wine. Slurpilicious till the last drop.
We have a signature tofu dish which is essentially tofu mashed with fish meat and some other ingredients before being cut up and deep fried. Quite standard this one.
I was delighted to see this Deep Fried Brinjal dish! I had similar dish at Restoran Hua Xing which was so memorable. The deep fried brinjals are stirred with chopped dried shrimps, garlic and spring onions, lovely! Yee Sang Fatt version has thicker brinjal which is crispy on the outside but retain a soft texture on the inside. Hua Xing's version is crispy all over. I like both ways :p which spells "tham jiak" (greedy)
I have to agree with Lanatir that the steamed fish is the star attraction here. This one uses "Shong" fish head. Steamed in good quality soy sauce, ginger, garlic and topped with deep fried shallots and spring onions. A fresh fish doesn't need to be dressed up fanciful!
Our last dish of stir fried nai pak choy, no doubt easy but it's filled with wok hei. Nice as the veggies still retained its crunch.
I lost the receipt but it's rather cheap I would say, just over RM100 for these dishes, rice and a pot of Chinese tea. Definitely a great place to go again.
